I guess I’ve “arrived”… a bit late. I’ve discovered the wonders of Borax.


I use to wonder why buy something “else” for the laundry – you know, what good is having another box of something you have to add.


Then I received this to review and then I mentioned it to my Facebook fan page and even my Grandma commented that her mom used Borax.


I can’t remember when I last saw her comment on my Facebook page, but there she was 🙂 . And a number of readers told me about the wonders of Borax.



And so I took a picture of the back of the box to show you, but you probably already know what Borax does.


I’ve used this product over the past couple weeks to clean the bathroom, wash clothes, and quickly remove soap scum in the shower. My sister-in-law Lori also commented on Facebook that they’ve made slime and crystalized snowflakes from Borax and she uses it on the carpet as possible flea deterrent.


My Grandma uses it in her laundry and dishwasher as she has hard water (so do we!). I did notice my son’s well worn pair of red Ohio State sweatpants looked incredibly bright and new (minus the rip in them, of course) after I added some Borax to the wash. Other readers told me they use Borax as part of their homemade soap recipe.


And I’m sold. I am a Borax fan. And I have 3 coupons to giveaway. But first, let me tell you about the Borax Sweepstakes below!
